3. Easy there, tiger. Scrubbing shouldn’t be done vigorously. Going to town with a washcloth and vigorously scrubbing your skin could lead to irritation, redness, and while it seems totally contradictory, even breakouts. You don’t want to completely strip your skin of the oils that keep it in its balanced state.
4. Out with the old, in with the new. Don’t overuse a washcloth. You would never actively wipe a cloth that was ridden with germs across your face. And just because it’s been coated with cleanser doesn’t mean it’s sanitized and free of bacteria.
5. Unclog those pores. Sometimes your hands just don't cut it. I like to use a tool that is anti-bacterial and can properly unclog hard to get at pores. Scrubby Buddy is one of my favorite tools for the job. This tool uses tiny bristles to invigorate the skin and effectively clean pores, helping to exfoliate and soften the skin.
